Civilization

Excerpt

"In the present magnificent series of volumes, man's . . . creation of multiform beauties of design, colour and word, his ways of dealing with his fellows, his co-operations and dissensions; his ideals and lofty aspirations, his inevitable blunders and disappointments; in short, all his gropings, disheartening failures and unbelievable triumphs are recalled."

So James Harvey Robinson epitomizes the Fourteenth Edition of the Encyclopædia Britannica, in the article which will appear in its pages; but which is here printed for the first time in a limited edition for the Founder Subscribers of the new Britannica.

To you, then, the Founder Subscribers whose support facilitated this latest clear focus of the world's achievement, the publishers offer his essay CIVILIZATION as a fitting token. For it is only through the auspices of free minds, friends of learning and education like yourselves, that man is brought toward reason and enlightenment and all that we know as civilization.
